Murder suspect faces arraignment in Denison, IA

Posted:

DENISON, Iowa (KTIV) -- The man charged in a Denison, Iowa murder is back in Crawford County.

Authorities say 20-year-old Luis Trujillo-Mendez waived extradition in Oklahoma and returned to Iowa late last week. Mendez faces a first-degree murder charge in the shooting death of 27-year-old Lorenzo Nambo Garcia.

Garcia's body was found in a ditch near Dow City in January. Authorities say a search of Mendez's home in Denison turned up a gun and ammunition matching Garcia's gunshot wounds along with Garcia's wallet.

Mendez will face arraignment next Monday in Denison.
